Watch students of Professor Guiora’s Global Perspectives on Counter-terrorism course work through real-time scenarios in the 8th Annual Counter-Terrorism Simulation, Friday, April 10th. The Simulation is designed to test each student’s crisis management skills through realistic replication of current events. The course interspersed four mini simulations during the semester to develop skills relevant to the final main simulation.
Students in Professor Amos Guiora’s Global Perspectives of Counter-terrorism course spend the spring semester in a sophisticated and unique experiential learning environment. The relevance of this course is significantly heightened by recent terrorism related events in the Middle East. Disturbing media images dramatically demonstrate the threats posed by terrorism and the challenges confronting decision makers.
The course emphasizes the legal, moral, and geopolitical implications of operational counter-terrorism in conjunction with skills-based instruction focusing on advocacy and articulation, group decision making, stress based leadership, and information management.
The counter-terrorism scenario-based simulation exercise is the culmination of innovative, blended education. Designed by former students of the program, the simulation is a rigorous three and a half hour session providing students the opportunity to implement the skills and knowledge gained over the semester.
